In pictures: Life in a squat
Transient

As part of a series on housing and ways of life in the UK, anarchist Jan Maat talks about living in a London squat.

Jan, 33, does not have a permanent base, but chooses to squat in empty premises. Up to 12 people can live in the squat, which is made up of several derelict council flats.

"They are people who do things that donít make the money that enables them to pay the rent, or who are living a life that is pretty international."
